Weekly Forecast: Moving On from Past Mistakes

You made a vow. It’ll never happen again. You won’t allow it. This time, it’ll be different. You’re better prepared.

We’ve all been there. The pangs of regret are life’s growing pains. They’re useful; not pleasant. An aversion to repeating them is not only natural but completely understandable. But what is the outcome for the path that you’re on?

Today’s Weekly Tarot Forecast is for you.

Your weekly Tarot Forecast:

Past: Five of Cups

Present: Three of Wands

Future: Two of Cups

Advice: King of Cups

The dominant suit represented in today’s weekly forecast is Cups which is a reminder of the strength and power emotions carry and the energy emotions inspire in ourselves and others. Today, we’re living with the painful reminders carried over from our past mistakes represented by the Five of Cups. Life is beautiful and messy because we are beautiful and messy.

Sometimes, that messiness is comprised of moments that we’d prefer to soon forget. Our histories are filled with the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Yet, you know to hold onto your regrets and past mistakes as an oath you’ve made with yourself: never again.

And so you’ve taken precautions. You’ve noted the lessons that needed to be learned. You’re better prepared and far less naive. You know, deep down, that you’ve got this. The Three of Wands is the totem from that oath you’ve struck. In the present position, the Three of Wands acknowledges the thought and growth that has brought you to this moment.

As we gaze into your future, we see Two of Cups, which indicates that the measures you’ve taken and the lessons you’ve heeded have paid off.  You won’t be doomed to repeat the same regretful mistakes. You’ve moved on, more weathered, but also with more grit and a better understanding than you had before. You’re a far more balanced and well rounded person because of your history; not in spite of it. You also have a better understanding of what you can survive.

However, it’s important to remind ourselves that the desire to learn from past mistakes is, in part, a commitment to make new ones. The advice here is presented as King of Cups which is to be kind to yourself. Your future isn’t going to be without regret. Mistakes will still happen. There are still lessons yet to be learned.

What’s important here is that you embrace yourself with gentle compassion and understanding. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Your dignity will remain intact. You will survive this, too.
